When we heard the Google Street View camera car was coming to Toronto we had an idea. What if we hid large M&M’s inside Google Street View and challenged Canadians to find them? The result was a first-of-its-kind, multi-channel, digital treasure hunt. Players received clues from the website, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Foursquare, Stickybits and QR code posters. In 630 square km, we provided over 100 clues to help players find 3 red M&M’s and win.
